    Best and Worst xmas songs

    Being Xmas eve I thought I'd do a thread for those who care for xmas music. For those who do I was wondering what are your favorites and which ones you wouldn't mind if you didn't hear again.

    I enjoy most of the classic xmas songs, like white xmas by crosby and almost every song off the home alone soundtrack, and both xmas songs that Lennon and McCartney did. Also enjoy parodies from Bob Rivers. Favorite is Oh Come all ye faithful by Twisted Sister to the tune of were not gonna take it.

    Songs I can't stand are the ones for kids from Rudolph to Frosty and Santa's Coming to town. Also the xmas song by the beach boys. I'm a huge beach boys fan but when I heard that for even the first time it almost made me go light everything beach boys I have on fire.

    This one makes me giggle.

    For serious songs in my opinion "What Child is This" is tough to beat.

    I like Elvis- Blue Christmas

    Silent Night is also pretty powerful when done well.

    I like a lot of the old standards, but I also enjoy when somebody reinterprets something familiar. I just found this tonight & am really digging it...

    Yes, they are. And yes, you do. There is nothing that compares to it, it is quite amazing.

    Re: Best and Worst xmas songs

    If you count it, the best in my book is "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night" by Simon & Garfunkel.

    Honorable mention to the following:

    "Father Christmas" - The Kinks
    "My Beerdrunk Soul is Sadder than a Hundred Dead Christmas Trees" - The Joy Formidable
    "She Came Home For Christmas" - Mew
    "What WE Do on Christmas" - Atom & His Package


    TRUE AND VALIANT
